SAN JOSE, Calif.- Déjà Vu in court again Thursday when the man arrested for the murder and kidnapping of 15-year-old Morgan Hill teenager Sierra LaMar made an appearance, but did not enter a plea.
Antolin Garcia-Torres was back in front of a judge. LaMar disappeared in 2012 on her way to school. Her body has not been found.
Central Coast News spoke with the family back in March who said that even a year later, the pain of losing Sierra still feels the same. Sierra's father, Steve LaMar said this was an anniversary no one wanted to wake up to. "I was hoping we wouldn't be here," said LaMar.
Sierra's mother Marlene said every day of this past year has been agonizing. "the anguish and pain is just as difficult today as it was the day of the abduction, that hasn't changed," said LaMar.
Investigators said Sierra disappeared on the way to school on March 16th 2012. Her cell phone and purse were found in a field nearby. Months later deputies arrested Antolin Garcia-Torres for her murder.
